SMI has experienced breast imagers who practice all aspects of breast imaging and intervention. We offer tomosynthesis (3D mammography), breast ultrasound and ultrasound guided breast intervention, with state of the art ultrasound equipment. In addition, we offer breast MRI, and use two state of the art 3 Tesla magnets for breast cancer screening, and breast cancer staging. As a result, we can evaluate hard-to-assess abnormalities seen on mammography. Also, we evaluate lumpectomy sites following chemotherapy treatment in patients receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy, breast implant evaluation, and MRI-guided breast biopsy. We are also ACR accredited.
- Our physicians work closely with area breast surgeons and oncologists to provide state of the art services in breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment to the Peoria area community
We work with plastic surgeons using 3-D MR imaging to provide them with a vascular “road map.” For that reason, we create improved efficiency and design of breast reconstruction flaps for breast cancer patients who have had a mastectomy.
